    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    A charged particle is moving perpendicular to a magnetic field B. The table below shows the relationships between directions of three vector quantities. Notice that one entry is missing from each column of the table. Your job is to complete the table. Enter your answers in the pop-up menus below.

    Charge
    1)+
    2)-
    3)+
    Velocity
    1)+y
    2)
    3)-z
    B-field
    1)
    2)+x
    3)+y
    Force
    1)-z
    2)+z
    3)
    2. Relevant equations



    3. The attempt at a solution
    1)Select the missing entry for the Velocity Column.
    2)Select the missing entry for the B-Field Column.
    3)Select the missing entry for the Force Column.

    1)+x
    2)-Y
    3)+X

    Sure for all of them except 2.but i am wrong

    I think you should redraw your table, since it means nothing as it is!

    the relevant equation is F=q(vXB)
